    That episode was absolutely blasphemous. I was completely angered when who I thought was the Doctor’s wife was in fact the TARDIS! Neil Gaiman, you have brought shame and disrespect to the Gallifreyian religion! What you have written has placed you in the wrong and will be disciplined forthwith!

      …and to make matters worse, the so-called Mark of the Corsair, is the symbol Ouroboros! There’s no need for it! BLASPHEMER!!!! HERETIC!!!!

    i think it wasn’t the best ever or up there with the all time greats (Evil of the Daleks, Caves of Androzani etc) but it was quite good. Biggest dissapointment was that they didn’t use one of the other old control rooms. Would have been nice to see the McGann control room. But would have been expensive to build a set like that and only use it for one episode so I see why they only used a set they had in storage.

      The thought of Paul’s TARDIS console is so out of the picture, did you know how much it cost to build it, $1 million. It would of been interesting to see how they would of built it

    6.30 timeslot, can’t complain when the recent viewing figures are ENOUGH to speak for the mistake that was 6.00 (epsiodes 1+2)!!Six is pretty early, by todays standards of Dr Who. And I always prefer to watch DR Who after dark, even when its being broadcast. 😯 😉

    It wouldnt be so bad though, when the second half of this series is broadcast in Autumn, it’ll probably be DARK at this time!!

    The Doctors wife was absolutely amazing,
    I almost wet myself when Amy found Rory’s body surrounded with messages…

      Most people did – I suspect FM has an agenda to try a upset the fans by coming out with nonsense every week 🙂 I know your game you Xfile trickster you.

    BooBoo Is It Me Or Is Rory Getting More Involved With River Song, Like, He Got Emotional After The Doctors Wife.

      river wasnt in the doctors wife what do you mean

    Was hoping that by every possability, the antagonistic voice was that of Omega. When the Doctor hears that alarming message “Im TRAPPED! The High Council of Timelords need to know I’m here!! ” my expectations were totally raised, that Omega was going to make a comeback.

    But really, this story is about something else altogether, no part for old Omega, sorry! 😆 It doenst really matter,
    Omega died at the end of that story Arc of Infinity anyway. 😛

    That woman, who we later find out is the Tardis in person, I though that idea was pulled off not badly atall, in this stroy. So here’s to Neil Gaimen. :cheers:

      I agree, I was fairly disapointed that omega wasn’t in it.

    “The only water in the forest is the RIVER” could that be River Song???

    really emotional ep! brill! FANT BLOOMIN TASTIC! The TARDIS is worse than River and Romana put together! oh by the way the TARDIS’ name is now sexy….

    I was rather confused at the start….and began to wonder what else was on to be honest! Then the sinister twist kicked in….something that traps and eats TARDIS’s…..recycles Timelords Frankenstein-style…..fantastic! Loved the sinister feel to the whole thing & for the first time in a long time couldn’t see how they were going to get out of this one. The balance between the Doctor and the companions was better in this episode. A cracker we will look back on with pleasure.

    The new Tardis make shift console was designed by a Blue Peter comPetition winner.

    It was nice seeing the 9th and 10th Doctor’s console room again, but I was hoping that they would dive deeper into Who History and perhaps show the secondary console room of the 4th Doctor. It’s not my personal favorite, but it would have been funny to see Amy and Rory’s reaction to it. I really like it when they tap into Who History and show things from the past. I really enjoyed the episode, and the junkyard planet was cool. It was neat seeing bits and pieces of TARDIS just laying about. I also enjoyed the console that the girl designed for the contest. I think the art department and prop makers did a wonderful job of making her vision a reality in the Doctor Who universe. I must admit that I was a bit worried when I saw the drawings of it, but my worries were brushed aside when I saw it on screen. I really loved the red center column. I also enjoyed seeing corridors inside the TARDIS, that was fun. We’ve never seen them like that before, the shape was really cool. I was a bit confused about the Ood, with the glowing eyes thing. Was he a possesed Ood? Always love seeing an Ood

      Yes the ood was possessed by the house

      I had every reason to THINK (think, not EXPECT)the antagonistic voice to be Omega. When the Doctor hears that alarming message “Im TRAPPED! Does the High Council of the Timelords know I’m here!! ” my expectations were totally raised, that Omega was going to make a comeback.

      The Doctor might even have thought so aswell, but it turns out this story is about something else altogether, no part for old Omega, sorry! 😆

      The voice saying I’m trapped… I thought sounded a lot like Paul McGann

    • Dark Side of the Moon

      May 18th, 2011 - 12:07pm

      I thought it sounded like Paul McGann too…my brain was racing ahead thinking “could it be a message from the Doctors own past” alas its wasnt to be….still a cracking episode tho!

    What a fantastic episode, the best of the Moffat era so far!! This season is getting better and better each week – wonderful stuff

    Fab episode. River Song is Amy’s daughter but Amy and Rory either die or are in an alternate universe,therefore unable to look after her.The little girl who escaped the spacesuit and regenerated is a timelord\lady. We will meet her soon,the doctor will entrust her with the baby and take them to Gallifrey where they will live and River will learn about time travel and Gallifreyan language.The doctor will visit her years later where they fall in love etc.River has no idea Amy is her mother,but she’s going to find out ……
    just a hunch but it feels right to me…

      May 15th, 2011 - 1:41pm

      the only problem with that is amys daughter is a time lord\lady and river song is human but an important human to the doctor,I reckon amys daughter could be jenny from the doctors daughter
      and another thing i want to know in the end of time you see a woemen who keeps on talking to wilfred and at the end the doctor looks at her and looks shocked
      culd we ever find out who she is?????

      Russell kept tight lipped about who it was but I remember him saying something along the lines of ‘of course it was going to be his mother’.

    • Laura Pope

      May 15th, 2011 - 10:53pm

      The woman was his Mother.Why do you think Amy’s daughter is a timelord?

    That was such a clever episode, I have always wondered what the Tardis would say if it could talk, brilliant episode!
